Dentsu Brand Agencies has announced that Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu had a great night at the 2019 APAC Effies, finishing in third place overall against agencies many times its size.
This is a great achievement by the Auckland-based agency, which also had the most finalists of any agency in the region. It was no fluke either, with the agency having finalists across four different clients: The Movember Foundation, Meridian Energy, Tower Insurance and Subaru. Those finalists were converted into Gold for Movember and two Bronze for Meridian Energy as well as Bronzes for Tower Insurance and Movember.
“Creativity with a singular focus to drive results is at the core of Dentsu’s DNA. BC&F Dentsu understands this as no other within our network. To see this result so shortly after being yet again crowned ADFEST Network of the Year, is a clear demonstration of our mission,” said Dick van Motman, global CEO, creative, Dentsu Aegis Network.
Murray Streets, managing director at BC&F Dentsu said, “I speak on behalf of myself, Luke, Daniel, Paul and the rest of the team in talking of my immense pride in what everyone in the agency has achieved. Our focus has always been to do the most effective work we can for our clients, and it is wonderful to see that vindicated in such a spectacular way.”
Murray added, “As an independent we have been the Number One Indie agency in Asia Pacific three times and since joining the Dentsu network we have gone from strength to strength.”
